Scribe 9 Honors 8-23-13

Today in class, we started off with writing down our homework, which was nothing (Smith said this might be the only weekend we don’t have homework all year) except to remember when you signed up for your conference, because you should show up.
Then we went to library orientation. Mr. Murphy talked to us about all sorts of library stuff.

  • Behavior

When we got back to the class, we began to read and annotate The Cask of Amomtillado by Edgar Allen Poe. We copy pasted it into a google doc and annotated by highlighting portions of text with our cursors, then right clicking and inserting a comment, or by pressing Ctrl-Alt-M. Before we began, we compiled this little list of what annotations to make and what they do.                                                                                                                                               

  • Questions-text? -understandings -pushing thinking -I wonder/what if=predictions->engagement
  • active and passive readers--active is important for school--passive is okay for out of school
  • Connections
    • text to self, text to world/history, text to text/movies/songs
    • LOTF connection to Nazi Germany example of text to world
    • extensions
    • “stay true to text”
  • annotations slow down reading, but thats okay

So we began annotating and here is an example of our annotations (it’s mine!)
